Hey everyone, I am the new owner of a 2018 Spark Trixx 3UP. This is my first watercraft. The jet ski is in good shape, but the clamp for the adjustable handlebars won’t close and I’m hoping someone here can help me.

When I close the clamp as hard as I can, there is still about an inch or so between the clamp and the front of the bars. I have tried tightening and loosening the small black piece on the side of the handlebars that faces the rider to no avail. Maybe hitting the clamp with a hammer would close it, but I obviously don’t want to do that. I looked in the owners manual but that was not any help. Hopefully I’m just overlooking some kind of adjustment somewhere and I’ll feel like an idiot when you point it out to me. Thanks in advance.BD690EAD-DDA9-4F45-8564-4B839496693A.jpeg5620FFAB-2CB1-41AE-AE15-5B1977586738.jpeg

The clamp handle can loosen if you turn it counter clockwise...then it will close flush against the riser.

Okay so I just tried this for quite a while. I tried going in both directions but nothing helped. I was still unable to get it to close any further. Is there a trick to it that I’m missing? Thanks for your help.

It looks to be the same as a mountain bike quick release clamp used on front wheels and seat posts for adjustment. I would have bet $$$$ that loosening it one full turn counter clock wise then clamping it down would have made it lock closer to the riser.

I’m stumped. I have a new 2020 Trixx on order and hope I can figure it out when it’s in front of me. Best of luck with it.
